The Office for Institutional Equity has been reorganized as of July 1, 2015. Ohio University now has two offices that will address specialized areas, the Office of Equity and Civil Rights Compliance (ECRC) and the Office for Equal Opportunity and Accessibility (EOA). Both offices are located in Lindley Hall 006.
The Office of Equity and Civil Rights Compliance will oversee the university’s efforts to promote a discrimination and harassment -free environment and will be responsible for resolving complaints of discrimination on the basis of protected status. ECRC houses the university Title IX Coordinator, who is responsible for coordinating the university’s efforts to comply with Title IX, which is the federal statute that prohibits sex discrimination. Sexual misconduct can be a form of sex discrimination, and it includes offenses such as sexual assault, domestic violence, sexual harassment, and stalking. For further information, please visit the ECRC website at ohio.edu/equity-civil-rights/ or call ECRC at 740-593-9140.
The Office for Equal Opportunity and Accessibility will oversee our equal opportunity obligations, including affirmative action, and lead efforts to fulfill ADA/504 requirements. The university’s ADA/504 Coordinator is positioned here. For further information, please visit the EOA website at ohio.edu/equal-opportunity/ or call EOA at 740-593-9132.
